Biography

Betta Half’s blend of life experiences, fluid raps and trunk rattling beats are a critical part of Huntsville, Alabama’s wing of the hip-hop rising force. Their main focus is to take rap music to a whole new level while at the same time putting Alabama on the map. Southern hip-hop in bold, innovative new directions: less reliance on aggression, more positivity and melody, and intricate lyrics. After Dizzy and Roy Antonio’s single “Me Be Me” recieved heavy rotation on a local radio station, 103. 1 WEUP, the duo knew that they were on to something and soon released their debut album, “The Silence Before the Storm” which contained 17 artistic tracks. In 2000 Derrick Pelt (Dizzy) and Roy Hampton (Roy Antonio) met through a mutual friend and they soon realized their passion to do music. They often freestyled at parties or anywhere there wasa crowd to be entertained. Their musical journey was delayed when Dizzy was deployed to Iraq one year, but they never lost the drive to be successful. Roy Antonio continued with the quest and formed the group, “Royale Defleet”. The group was unsuccessful but the vision stayed firm and upon Dizzy’s return in March 2005, they formed their own group “Betta Half”. The name symbolizes the idea of being the better half, continuing to be positive and true to themselves. Since March 2005 the group has shown their determination for success by already recording 40+ tracks.
